Edge Gateway accelerates edge to cloud digital transformation

Edge Gateway accelerates edge to cloud digital transformation
Rockwell Automation has introduced the first capability of its edge strategy with FactoryTalk Edge Gateway, to simplify and accelerate IT/OT convergence. Industrial enterprises struggle to aggregate operational data from heterogeneous sources and add relevant context from the source - such as process conditions, time stamps, machine states and other production states - to the IT layer. This prevents them from uncovering potentially game-changing insights at the enterprise level.

Making short production runs more efficient with motion systems

Making short production runs more efficient with motion systems
Manufacturers are customising products to meet more targeted consumer demands. As a result, they must contend with shorter production runs and more frequent changeovers, which takes time away from producing products. The MagneMover LITE system is helping make these higher-SKU operations efficient by moving payloads faster in a more flexible way than traditional conveyors do today.
